I back stitching on Sake Box. Have it been over five months (did I count that right or has it just been four months) since I stitch on the piece where did the time go. I put it up before Thanksgiving (since we was have a house full of family could not leave out) then one thing led to another and another and another. Finally everything work out right that I was able to set things up and I even stitch some this morning. Hope I will be able to stitch on the piece more in the coming months. Need to get more done before class with Shay in June.
